THE HOLY BIBLE Darby

Leviticus (Author Moses)

20:1And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

20:2Thou shalt say also to the children of Israel, Every one of the children of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel, that giveth of his seed unto Molech, shall certainly be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

20:3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, so as to make my sanctuary unclean, and to profane my holy name.

20:4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from that man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, that they kill him not,

20:5then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

20:6-- And the soul that turneth unto necromancers and unto soothsayers, to go a whoring after them, I will set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

20:7Hallow yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am Jehovah your God.

20:8And ye shall observe my statutes, and do them: I am Jehovah who hallow you.

20:9Whatever man revileth his father and his mother shall certainly be put to death: he hath reviled his father and his mother; his blood is upon him.

20:10And a man that committeth adultery with a man's wife, who committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, -- the adulterer and the adulteress shall certainly be put to death.

20:11And a man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them shall certainly be put to death; their blood is upon them.

20:12And if a man lie with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall certainly be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood is upon them.

20:13And if a man lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall certainly be put to death; their blood is upon them.

20:14And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is infamy: they shall burn him and them with fire, that there be no infamy among you.

20:15And if a man lie with a beast for copulation, he shall certainly be put to death; and ye shall kill the beast.

20:16And if a woman approach unto any beast to gender therewith, thou shalt kill the woman and the beast: they shall certainly be put to death; their blood is upon them.

20:17And if a man take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness, that is a disgrace; and they shall be cut off before the eyes of the children of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.

20:18And if a man shall lie with a woman in her infirmity, and uncover her nakedness, her flux doth he lay bare, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood; and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.

20:19And the nakedness of thy mother's sister, and of thy father's sister shalt thou not uncover; for he hath laid naked his near relation: they shall bear their iniquity.

20:20And if a man lie with his aunt, he hath uncovered his uncle's nakedness: their sin shall they bear: they shall die childless.

20:21And if a man take his brother's wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother's nakedness: they shall be childless.

20:22And ye shall observe all my statutes, and all mine ordinances, and do them, that the land whither I bring you to dwell therein vomit you not out.

20:23And ye shall not walk in the customs of the nation which I am casting out before you; for all these things have they done, and they became an abomination to me.

20:24And I have said unto you, Ye shall possess their land, and I will give it unto you for a possession; a land flowing with milk and honey: I am Jehovah your God, who have separated you from the peoples.

20:25And ye shall make a separation between the clean beast and the unclean, and between the unclean fowl and the clean, and ye shall not make yourselves an abomination by beast, or by fowl, or by anything that creepeth on the ground which I have separated for you, declaring it as unclean.

20:26And ye shall be holy unto me; for I Jehovah am holy, and have separated you from the peoples to be mine.

20:27And if there be a man or a woman in whom is a spirit of Python or of divination, they shall certainly be put to death: they shall stone them with stones; their blood is upon them.

21:1And Jehovah said to Moses, Speak unto the priests, the sons of Aaron, and say unto them, There shall none make himself unclean for a dead person among his peoples,

21:2except for his immediate relation, who is near unto him -- for his mother, and for his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and for his brother;

21:3and for his sister, a virgin, that is near unto him, who hath had no husband, for her may he make himself unclean.

21:4He shall not make himself unclean who is a chief among his peoples, to profane himself.

21:5They shall not make any baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corners of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.

21:6They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of their God; for they present Jehovah's offerings by fire, the bread of their God; therefore shall they be holy.

21:7They shall not take as wife a whore, or a dishonoured woman; neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband; for he is holy unto his God.

21:8And thou shalt hallow him; for the bread of thy God doth he present: he shall be holy unto thee; for I, Jehovah, who hallow you am holy.

21:9And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burned with fire.

21:10And the high priest among his brethren, on whose head the anointing oil was poured, and who is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his garments.

21:11Neither shall he come near any person dead, nor make himself unclean for his father and for his mother;

21:12neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the consecration of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am Jehovah.

21:13And he shall take a wife in her virginity.

21:14A widow, or a divorced woman, or a dishonoured one, a harlot, these shall he not take; but he shall take as wife a virgin from among his peoples.

21:15And he shall not profane his seed among his peoples; for I am Jehovah who do hallow him.

21:16And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

21:17Speak unto Aaron, saying, Any of thy seed throughout their generations that hath any defect, shall not approach to present the bread of his God;

21:18for whatever man hath a defect, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or one limb longer than the other,

21:19or a man that is broken-footed, or broken-handed,

21:20or hump-backed, or withered, or that hath a spot in his eye, or hath the itch, or scabs, or his testicles broken.

21:21No man of the seed of Aaron the priest that hath defect shall come near to present Jehovah's offerings by fire: he hath a defect; he shall not come near to present the bread of his God.

21:22The bread of his God, of the most holy and of the holy, shall he eat;

21:23only he shall not come in unto the veil, nor shall he draw near unto the altar; for he hath a defect: that he profane not my sanctuaries; for I am Jehovah who do hallow them.

21:24And Moses told it to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the children of Israel.

22:1And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

22:2Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane not my holy name in the things that they hallow unto me: I am Jehovah.

22:3Say unto them, Every one of all your seed, throughout your generations, that approacheth the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow unto Jehovah, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from before me: I am Jehovah.

22:4Whatsoever man of the seed of Aaron is a leper, or hath a flux, he shall not eat of the holy things, until he is clean. And he that toucheth any one that is unclean by a dead person, or a man whose seed of copulation hath passed from him;

22:5or a man that toucheth any crawling thing whereby he becometh unclean, or a man by whom he may become unclean, whatever may be his uncleanness,

22:6-- a person that toucheth any such shall be unclean until even, and shall not eat of the holy things; but he shall bathe his flesh with water,

22:7and when the sun goeth down, he shall be clean, and may afterwards eat of the holy things; for it is his food.

22:8Of a dead carcase and what is torn shall he not eat, to make himself unclean therewith: I am Jehovah.

22:9And they shall keep my charge, lest they bear sin for it, and die by it, if they profane it: I am Jehovah who do hallow them.

22:10And no stranger shall eat the holy thing; the sojourner with the priest, and the hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.

22:11But if a priest buy any one for money, he may eat of it, and he that is born in his house: they may eat of his food.

22:12And a priest's daughter who is married to a stranger may not eat of the heave-offering of the holy things.

22:13But a priest's daughter that becometh a widow, or is divorced, and hath no seed, and returneth unto her father's house, as in her youth, she may eat of her father's food; but no stranger shall eat thereof.

22:14And if a man eat of a holy thing through inadvertence, then he shall put the fifth part thereof unto it, and shall give it unto the priest with the holy thing.

22:15And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel which they offer unto Jehovah,

22:16and cause them to bear the iniquity of trespass when they eat their holy things; for I am Jehovah who do hallow them.

22:17And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

22:18Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them, Whatever man of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners in Israel, that presenteth his offering for any of his vows, and for any of his voluntary offerings, which they present to Jehovah as a burnt-offering,

22:19it shall be for your acceptance, without blemish, a male of the oxen, of the sheep, and of the goats.

22:20Nothing that hath a defect shall ye present; for it shall not be acceptable for you.

22:21And if any present a sacrifice of peace-offering to Jehovah to accomplish a vow, or a voluntary offering of oxen or small cattle, it shall be without blemish to be accepted: there shall be no defect therein.

22:22Blind, or broken, or maimed, or ulcerous, or with itch, or scabbed -- ye shall not present these to Jehovah, nor make an offering by fire of them on the altar to Jehovah.

22:23A bullock and a sheep that hath a member too long or too short, that mayest thou offer as a voluntary offering; but as a vow it shall not be accepted.

22:24That which is bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut shall ye not present to Jehovah; neither in your land shall ye do the like.

22:25Nor from the hand of the stranger shall ye present the bread of your God, of any of these; for their corruption is in them: a defect is in them; they shall not be accepted for you.

22:26And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

22:27An ox, or a sheep, or a goat, when it is brought forth, shall be seven days under its dam; and from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for an offering by fire to Jehovah.

22:28A cow, or sheep -- it and its young shall ye not slaughter in one day.

22:29And when ye sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving to Jehovah, ye shall sacrifice it for your acceptance.

22:30On that day shall it be eaten: ye shall leave none of it until morning: I am Jehovah.

22:31And ye shall observe my commandments and do them: I am Jehovah.

22:32And ye shall not profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am Jehovah who do hallow you,

22:33who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Jehovah.

23:1And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

23:2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the set feasts of Jehovah, which ye shall proclaim as holy convocations -- these are my set feasts.

23:3Six days shall work be done; but on the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, a holy convocation; no manner of work shall ye do: it is the sabbath to Jehovah in all your dwellings.

23:4These are the set feasts of Jehovah, holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons:

23:5In the first month, on the fourteenth of the month, between the two evenings, is the passover to Jehovah.

23:6And on the fifteenth day of this month is the feast of unleavened bread to Jehovah; seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread.

23:7On the first day ye shall have a holy convocation: no manner of servile work shall ye do.

23:8And ye shall present to Jehovah an offering by fire seven days; on the seventh day is a holy convocation: no manner of servile work shall ye do.

23:9And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

23:10Speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them, When ye come into the land that I give unto you, and ye reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest unto the priest.

23:11And he shall wave the sheaf before Jehovah, to be accepted for you; on the next day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.

23:12And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf, a he-lamb without blemish, a yearling, for a burnt-offering to Jehovah;

23:13and the oblation thereof: two tenths of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering by fire to Jehovah for a sweet odour; and the drink-offering thereof, of wine, a fourth part of a hin.

23:14And ye shall not eat bread, or roast corn, or green ears, until the same day that ye have brought the offering of your God: it is an everlasting statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

23:15And ye shall count from the morning after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave-offering, seven weeks; they shall be complete;

23:16even unto the morning after the seventh sabbath shall ye count fifty days; and ye shall present a new oblation to Jehovah.

23:17Out of your dwellings shall ye bring two wave-loaves, of two tenths of fine flour; with leaven shall they be baken; as first-fruits to Jehovah.

23:18And ye shall present with the bread seven he-lambs without blemish, yearlings, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be a burnt-offering to Jehovah with their oblation, and their drink-offerings, an offering by fire of a sweet odour to Jehovah.

23:19And ye shall sacrifice one buck of the goats for a sin-offering, and two he-lambs, yearlings, for a sacrifice of peace-offering.

23:20And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first-fruits as a wave-offering before Jehovah, with the two he-lambs; they shall be holy to Jehovah, for the priest.

23:21And ye shall make proclamation on that same day -- a holy convocation shall it be unto you: no manner of servile work shall ye do: it is an everlasting statute in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

23:22And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not in thy harvest entirely reap the corners of thy field, and the gleaning of thy harvest shalt thou not gather: thou shalt leave them unto the poor and to the stranger: I am Jehovah your God.

23:23And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

23:24Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first of the month, shall ye have a rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.

23:25No manner of servile work shall ye do; and ye shall present an offering by fire to Jehovah.

23:26And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

23:27Also on the tenth of this seventh month is the day of the atonement: a holy convocation shall it be unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and present an offering by fire to Jehovah.

23:28And ye shall do no manner of work on that same day; for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement for you before Jehovah your God.

23:29For every soul that is not afflicted on that same day, shall be cut off from among his peoples.

23:30And every soul that doeth any manner of work on that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.

23:31No manner of work shall ye do: it is an everlasting statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

23:32A sabbath of rest shall it be unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls. On the ninth of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

23:33And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

23:34Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the feast of booths seven days to Jehovah.

23:35On the first day there shall be a holy convocation: no manner of servile work shall ye do.

23:36Seven days ye shall present an offering by fire to Jehovah; on the eighth day shall be a holy convocation unto you; and ye shall present an offering by fire to Jehovah: it is a solemn assembly; no manner of servile work shall ye do.

23:37These are the set feasts of Jehovah, which ye shall proclaim as holy convocations, to present an offering by fire to Jehovah, a burnt-offering, and an oblation, a sacrifice, and drink-offerings, everything upon its day;

23:38besides the sabbaths of Jehovah, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides all your voluntary offerings, which ye give to Jehovah.

23:39But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the produce of the land, ye shall celebrate the feast of Jehovah seven days: on the first day there shall be rest, and on the eighth day there shall be rest.

23:40And ye shall take on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, palm branches and the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before Jehovah your God seven days.

23:41And ye shall celebrate it as a feast to Jehovah seven days in the year: it is an everlasting statute throughout your generations; in the seventh month shall ye celebrate it.

23:42In booths shall ye dwell seven days; all born in Israel shall dwell in booths;

23:43that your generations may know that I caused the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am Jehovah your God.

23:44And Moses declared the set feasts of Jehovah to the children of Israel.
